In my above painting, Cresting Wave, I wanted to convey the form of the wave and water with value (gray scale) and color temperature. I considered the cool value of the blue sky and used warm sunlight from the left side. While water is also influenced by its surroundings and bottom, I concentrated on the sky and sunlight to model form. I considered an open half sphere and the upper top sphere for the crest of the wave. The planes facing the sky were painted with cool hues to reflect the sky. The bottom of the wave received more color from the sky. Immediately under the crest, the water is painted a warmer hue as it received more exposure from the sun. My shadows are a cooler temperature and a darker value.
